### Transcript

• 1. Excel SUMIFS Function
• 2. Introduction
SUMIFS Function is new induction in the Microsoft Excel’s Function family
This is a wonderful function which can sum a range of cells depending on the criteria specified by the user. It is similar to the SUMIF function but with one exception that SUMIF can only check one criteria but SUMIFS can do multiple criteria checking
• 3. Criteria Operator
We can use the operators in the criteria field, these operators are called the relational operators and they are
• 4. Syntax of SUMIFS
This is the range which contains the range of cells in which you want to check the criteria1
This is the range which will contain the numbers which you want the sum for
=SUMIFS(sum_range, criteria_range1, criteria1[, criteria_range2, criteria2], ….)
This is the criteria which you want to search into the criteria_range1, this parameter may be enclosed in “ inverted commas or may be a cell reference
This is the range which will contain the range of cell in which you want to check the criteria 2, this is similar to criteria_range1 with one exception that it will look for criteria2
This is the criteria 2 which you want to search into the criteria_range2 this parameter may be enclosed in “ inverted commas or may be a cell reference
• 5. SUMIFS examples
=SUMIFS(A1:A10, B1:B10, “&gt;1000”, C1:C10, “East”)
The above example says; that sum the cells in range A1:A10 where its corresponding B1:B10 cells is greater than 1000 and at the same time if the corresponding C1:C10 is “East”
• 6. SUMIFS examples
This is the range which will contain the numbers which you want the sum for
This is the range which contains the range of cells in which you want to check the criteria1
This is the criteria which you want to search into the criteria_range1, this parameter may be enclosed in “ inverted commas or may be a cell reference
This is the range which will contain the range of cell in which you want to check the criteria 2, this is similar to criteria_range1 with one exception that it will look for criteria2
This is the criteria 2 which you want to search into the criteria_range2 this parameter may be enclosed in “ inverted commas or may be a cell reference
• 7. SUMIFS examples
You can also replace the criteria with some cell range in the next example we will see the same
• 8. SUMIFS examples
You can see that this criteria_1 refers to a cell reference G5 which contains the criteria. Advantage of using cell reference is that you can directly change the criteria in the cell.
This field is also used as reference criteria_2
• 9. Multiple Criteria
As we have used 2 examples in the last sample, you can also use couple of times
• 10. Conclusion
SUMIFS is a new induction in the function family of Microsoft Excel in its version Excel 2007, very similar like SUMIF with only one distinction that SUMIFS can check multiple examples
You can use operators in the criteria which are called relational operators
You can use criteria in one of two ways either you can enter constants or you can also use cell reference
